Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak returned to work on a limited basis earlier this week, but could pick up where he left off on Sunday.
Kubiak recently suffered a mini-stroke at halftime of Houston’s game against Indianapolis on November 3, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter believes the coach will resume his role against the Oakland Raiders this weekend.
Texans HC Gary Kubiak is expected to coach Sunday vs. Raiders, per league source. He's building up his hours this week.

Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is currently filling in as interim coach. Houston was defeated by Arizona, 27-24, with Phillips in charge this past Sunday.
Houston is currently suffering through a franchise-record seven-game losing streak. The Texans were recently forced to place running back Arian Foster on injured reserve due to a back injury, while they released safety Ed Reed this past Tuesday.
If Kubiak’s health concerns are behind him, he can now refocus on turning around a disappointing team that advanced to the playoffs last season.
